Jim StroudRecently, I spoke at a Recruiter Summit in Orlando, Florida and had a blast! The people were very kind and I was fortunate enough to learn a lot from the other speakers. My topic was “What can recruiting expect in the year 2013?” In my presentation I gave three predictions and backed them up with research, anecdotes and the occasional laugh. It was so well received that I decided to post a version of what I shared here. So, check it out and let me know what you think?

In a nutshell, these were my main points:

  1. The Millennial Workforce increases its Impact
  2. Big Data Gets Respect
  3. Its the Content Stupid! (Content is the new SEO)

If you scroll down past the video below, you will see links to source material as well as some good reading. Just in case you want to go even deeper into what I was looking into. As always, your feedback is appreciated. So, please, leave a comment below. (I would also appreciate a tweet, a like or, a plus one. Just sayin’…)
